Tactical Path Introduction for STO Credits
Tactical officers are most useful in the DPS or Damage roles; they do their best work while dealing damage to enemies in ground and space combat. Tactical officers usually wear red and are best matched with Escort vessels for Federation and Raiders or Raptors for Klingon Empire, which are also the best starships in terms of inflicting damage to enemies.
They do this through maximizing the damage output of their Energy Beams & Cannons or Projectile weaponry like Torpedoes & Mines, and through increasing that potential through Attack Patterns (α, β, Δ, and Ω).
